DepEd Urges Teachers to do More Research Studies

The Department of Education (DepEd) encouraged school teachers in Western Visayas to conduct research studies to better understand and advance basic education in the country.
This is in line with DepEd Order No. 39, series of 2016 which tackles the adoption of the Basic Education Research Agenda.
Emiljohn C. Sentillas, Education Program Specialist II, DepEd Policy, Research and Development Division-Planning Service, said that the Basic Education Research Agenda aims to provide guidance to DepEd and its stakeholders in the conduct of education research and in the utilization of research results to inform the department’s planning, policy, and program development.
“The Research Agenda shall build on gains from existing research, generate new knowledge on priority research areas, focus DepEd’s attention on relevant education issues, and maximize available resources for research within and outside the department,” he said.
He said the Research Agenda revolves around four main themes, namely: teaching and learning, child protection, human resource development, and governance.
DepEd seeks to ensure that learning outcomes are achieved by maximizing the competencies of teachers and potentials of all types of learners. This theme covers the actors, activities, and fundamental aspects of teaching and learning in various contexts.
The theme on child protection will focus on research questions on the current policies and programs to ensure that every learner is safe inside the school.
As DepEd is the nation’s largest bureaucracy, it is imperative that various strategies are developed to nurture the vast human capital involved in delivering basic education.
The governance theme of the Research Agenda underscores DepEd’s commitment to ensure that its structure, systems, and processes contribute to the achievement of basic education outcomes.
